“Valentine’s Dates” by Rhian Cahill (ebook)
This is a very cute romance about Valentine and her brother’s best friend Brent who is tired of watching her date a series of losers. This novella is a very quick read at only 55 pages, but put a happy smile on my face when I was finished.
“Disciplined by the Dom” by Chloe Cox (ebook)
Last week, I read Cox’s “Tied by the Tycoon,” a story that I enjoyed. However, the BDSM scene where the hero has anal sex with the heroine while she is tied up and restrained on a device of some sort and hung off the side of a Manhattan building in the middle of winter gave me pause. Of course, I had to go read the next book in the series which had a disclaimer about some of the scenes (which weren’t nearly as WTF? as those in the Tycoon book). I had a very difficult time with the heroine of this story who had been anally raped by a close family friend and seemed to be seeking out BDSM as a way to fix herself. Personally, I thought she could’ve used a therapist instead.

Series: Lords of Vice, book six
They were children when the Duke of Huntsley was introduced to Lady Grace Kearly. The young duke—nicknamed “Hunter”—took one look at his future bride and thought only of escaping his responsibilities to his family. Marriage was for grown-ups and Hunter still had years of skirt-chasing ahead of him. But now the time has come for Hunter to heed the call: if this Lord of Vice hopes to keep all of his inheritance, he’ll have to claim his long-neglected betrothed…

Series: Book 2, Facets of Passion
Althea Grant's Charleston gallery might be suffering from the bad economy, and her artistic aspirations have gone nowhere, but she's doing just fine, thank you. When bad-boy sculptor Steel rides up on his motorcycle looking to rent studio space, his infusion of cash is more than welcome. But his art is raw, visceral, sexual—and completely inappropriate for her pastel world of watercolor landscapes.

“Once Upon a Time in Bliss” by Sophie Oak (ebook)
This one features a CIA agent masquerading as a mild mannered, but dominant, professor in the nudist colony in Bliss, Colorado. This one is a prequel to the Nights in Bliss series. I enjoyed the book fine, but didn’t get to emotionally invested in the story.
